Worth Every Penny — The 1.9 TDi PD engine is the most efficient engine for this model, 90bhp, variable geometry turbine. Do not try to install BOW in combination with this type of turbine. Climatronic makes every cent, also disc brakes on rear wheels. alloy original wheels look OK. Comfortable driver seat, the bord computer is easy t use and provides very useful information. a lot of sensors wich announce if you have worn brakes for example. Low cost maintenance.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: almost everithing

Cons: nothing

It's Mine And I Like It :) — Good performance for its class - powerful, perfect brakes Decent build quality - yet not perfect, some squeaks from the doors and trunk Medium cost of ownership - great gas consumption (5.5l / 100 km on long trips), expensive original parts Perfect for group trips

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good engine, gas consumption, suitable for group trips (spacious interior)

Cons: Not very elegant, not a sport car

Get An Astra — Suffering in the reliability stakes, build quality surprisingly poor, huge, but awkward boot, two litre VW pump deuse engine is noisy and lacks bottom end torque. Averages 49 mpg. Not too tardy, and has the benefit of climate control. My Astra 1.9 cdti was a much better car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's ok(ish)

Cons: It's ok(ish)

If You Like To Be Bossy Use It — its good but d braking is not good at highspeeds and maintenence costs too much they would have given all disks it would be nice the rear middle passenger does not have comfort the accelerater and the brake liver are too close to each other usually i dont clutch and brake at high speed but when both of them are so close the car gets accelerated and simontunaniously the brakes try to work hard

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: pickup

Cons: brakes!!!!

Awesome Car — Drives incredibly well for a diesel FWD Family Wagon. With ESP turned on there is hardly any understeer even when pushed to the limit. Extremely cheap to buy and run. Reliable and good on gas. The only downside is that it sounds pretty average being a diesel and it has no street cred.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Performance, value for money

Cons: none

Skoda — Great accelaration. Fun to drive, easy to drive. Lots of space. 2.0 motor, which secures speed and acc. Steering ok. A/C works without problems. Only problem is the extensive use of sprinkling fluid which is needed on the Danish roads.

Pros: Speedy and lots of space

Cons: Nothing

Skoda Octavia Rs 2.0 Tdi Combi — Diesel 2.0 RS with V-tech Stage 1. about 210 hp and 410 nm runs really smooth with these settings. I love this car actually :) Nice interior and sound system , if you take the large soundkit. Well im werry happy with my car. its kind of cheap price to , 260000 swedish kronor with the most upgrades like soundsystem xenon..

Pros: GREAT car to own.

Cons: nothing?

My Vrs — It's the BEST!! Better than all the rest! The diesel engine is great throughout the whole rev range and is always pulling in all gears. The build quality isn't bad, but i've had better (my Audi A4 Quattro). Looks are good, but it doesnt stand out in a crowd (my SEAT Leon Cupra FR did). Running and ownership costs are second to none. I can do 600 miles from a 55 litre tank and tax is cheap too. This is a fun car to drive but I am considering getting an ECU remap to increase the bhp from 170 to 200.

Pros: It's mine

Cons: None
